DUNCAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said one man is dead and another faces a murder charge after a stabbing at an address on Buckingham Road in the Duncan area Thursday morning.

Dispatchers said the 911 call came in just after 6 a.m. Deputies said the initial call was to assist an ambulance but it was upgraded to a stabbing while they were en route.

Coroner Rusty Clevenger later identified the victim as 33-year-old Jeremy Edgar Bell of Lansdowne Road. Bell suffered multiple stab wounds and his death has been ruled a homicide.

Investigators were on scene for several hours Thursday morning.  Forensics teams collected evidence from outside a mobile and and around a Ford pickup truck parked near the property.

The pickup truck was later towed from the scene. A Chrysler 300 was also towed from the scene.

On Thursday afternoon, deputies said 48-year-old Lawton Leroy Holloway was arrested in connection with the incident. Holloway is charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Deputies said Holloway told them the stabbing victim had tried to assault a female at the scene, but other interviews and evidence didn't support his claims.

Holloway appeared before a judge early Friday morning and was denied bond. Holloway will be held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center until his next court hearing, which the judge set for November.

The investigation into Holloway's motive remains under investigation.
